U.K. Drops Changes to Non-Domicile Regime, But Likely Not for Long

Volume 4 No 4    /    Read Article

By Gary Ashford (guest author)

After months of H.M.R.C. consultation, a new regime was put in place for non-domiciled U.K.-resident individuals (“Non-Doms”) on April 6, 2017, only to see the legislation pulled from Finance Bill 2017 on April 25.
